What Arsenal can take from Wembley by Sam P
There was a hell of a lot for Arsenal fans to be happy about yesterday. Another major trophy, of course, as well as the great performance put in by the players to get us the result that we wanted. There was also the fantastic Wembley atmosphere created by the Gooners and the Aston Villa fans, which harked back to the good old days of the FA cup, helped by the FA making it the final game of the season again.
Football pundits have been talking about our second goal, the thunderbolt scored by Alexis Sanchez, as one of the all time best goals in the final and I am sure that we will be seeing it over and over again in the coming years. Walcott´s left footed beauty of an opener was not too shabby either and would have lit up any final.
But in my opinion the best thing about yesterday was the hope and expectation it left us all with, fans, players and manager combined. We now believe that the Gunners are on the verge of getting back to those glory days which culminated in the invincibles season.
We have good reason to believe as well. The trophy wait is well and truly over and the team has a winning mentality again. Arsene Wenger is full of hunger again and the squad is full of talent. So enjoy the FA cup and get ready for bigger and better days to come. What was your favourite thing about the Cup Final victory?
